Maintaining the camera
Using the camera with caution in the humid environments
When you move the camera from a cold environment to a warm one, 
condensation can form on the lens or internal components of the camera. 
In this situation, turn off the camera and wait for at least 1 hour.  
If condensation forms on the memory card, remove the memory card from 
the camera and wait until all moisture has evaporated before reinserting it.
Other precautions
Do not swing your camera by the strap. This may cause injury to yourself 
or others or damage to your camera.
Do not paint your camera, as paint can clog moving parts and prevent 
proper operation.
Turn off the camera when not using it.
Your camera consists of delicate parts. Avoid impacts to the camera.
Protect the display from damage by keeping it in the case when not in 
use. Protect the camera from scratches by keeping it away from sand, 
sharp objects, or loose change.
Do not use the camera if the screen is cracked or broken. Broken glass or 
acrylic could cause injury to your hands and face. Take the camera to a 
Samsung service center to have it repaired.
Never place cameras, batteries, chargers, or accessories near, on, or in 
heating devices, such as microwave ovens, stoves, or radiators. Heat can 
deform or overheat these devices, which can cause a fire or explosion.
Do not expose the lens to direct sunlight, as this may discolor the image 
sensor or cause it to malfunction.
Protect your lens from fingerprints and scratches. Clean your lens with a 
soft, clean, debris-free lens cloth.
The camera may turn off if impacted from the outside. This is to protect 
the memory card. Turn on the camera to use it again.
While you use the camera, it may heat up. This is normal and should not 
affect your camera’s lifespan or performance.
When you use the camera in low temperatures, it may take some time to 
turn on, the color of the display may be changed temporarily, or after-
images may appear. These conditions are not malfunctions and they will 
correct themselves when the camera is returned to milder temperatures.
Paint or metal on the outside of the camera may cause allergies,  
itchy skin, eczema, or swelling for people with sensitive skin.  
If you experience any of these symptoms, stop using the camera 
immediately and consult a doctor.
Do not insert foreign objects into any of your camera’s compartments, 
slots, or access points. Damage due to improper use may not be covered 
by your warranty.
Do not allow unqualified personnel to service the camera or attempt to 
service the camera yourself. Any damage that results from unqualified 
service is not covered by your warranty.
